Wow, usually when everyone is talking up one particular book it doesn't live up to all the hype but somehow Amy Lane pulled it off. She's created characters you want good things for them but life and emotionally made choices keep getting in Crick & Deacon's way. It's how they embrace the challenges and fight tooth and nail to get to each other. The secondary character are well drawn out and used well. I am not into angst but Lane has woven a wonderful tale and made a fan out of me!
